” Nearly three times as many BBC staff have been sent to cover Nelson Mandela’s death ” unfortunately for us they came back & we will have to continue paying excessive wages & pensions for the Bolshevik propaganda they churn out
What a waste of time and money! Nowadays, with all the news agencies and other technologies available do we really still need all these people on a “mission” who does nothing else but to repeat the same things and comments on and on again . The BBC supposed to spend our money wisely instead of overdoing only for their political goals!!
Well, what do you expect? With endless amounts of money extracted from licence fee payers, we already know the BBC is grossly overstaffed, so one would expect them to send more staff than any broadcaster would need to cover one event. Don’t they do the same at Glastonbury? And it was Nelson Mandela after all, one of the BBC’s favourite poster boys for their right-on, politically correct world view. (Whether Mr Mandela would have agreed with them, I cannot say.) As for ‘the most significant statesman of the last 100 years’, by whose measure exactly? Mr Mandela ‘freed’ black people of South Africa, and a quarter of a century later, they still live, pretty much, in the same poverty and social deprivation as before. I’m sure he was thoroughly disappointed by that, but according to some left wing activist at the BBC, he was still ‘the most significant statesman of the last 100 years’. Well, of course, if the BBC say it, it must be true. Mustn’t it?
